I expect them to add "Decision Days" until after the anniversary of Stonewall or, more likely, hold off the Decision until October. That will require that the cases be reheard. I wouldn't mind that bit at all.

Maybe we'll get lucky and Scalia will drop dead between now & October! Hopefully he's on the Gandolfini diet.

I just wish they would get off their asses and issue the damn ruling! Oh,and I agree wholeheartedly with the Scalia comment! With all the comments he has made over the years he should have stepped aside on account of his obvious bias! Oh and Minnesota remains the 12th state to pass marriage equality!

Yes, at this juncture patience is likely the important factor. It seems the supreme court has actually already made it's decision and is just waiting for more political support against DOMA and 8 before making that decision official. The steady rate at which politicians are coming out in support of equality is telling that it will happen soon, and the SCOTUS needs a majority of politicians to agree to keep their jobs, basically.

I've been saying that the Prop 8 ruling and the DOMA ruling will be announced on Monday, June 24, but Nina Totenberg on NPR was saying today, that the rulings may come later in the week. perhaps as late as Friday.

I doubt that will affect THESE decision except possibly negatively.

We don't have 1/3rd+1 of the States yet, and until we do we are vulnerable. A premature or too-seeping ruling by the SCotUS, even if the wanted to hand such a thing down (doubtful), could result in a Constitutional backlash.

Remember, it only took the right 20% of the electorate to leverage Prohibition into existence.
